School Supplies Donation Drive
Donations accepted at Jeep Nite Out, Sunset At the Beach and our August Monthly Member's Meeting on 8/3.
The kids will be heading back to in-person classrooms starting 8/10 and the Salvation Army's Hope House will be there to help our less fortunate Nassau County students with supplies. Many families are unable to purchase the essential items that students need to succeed, so let's help them out!
Some of the supplies needed include backpacks, binders, crayons (24-pk), pocket dictionary, folders (clasp & two pocket), glue sticks, Elmers glue, highlighters, markers, graph paper, notebook paper (both narrow & wide ruled), pencil cases, colored pencils, pens, rulers, scissors (pointed & safety), spiral notebooks, staplers and subject dividers.
Eight Flags Jeep Club is currently putting together a Jeep Club CERT Team.
This "Community Emergency Response Team" can assist local law enforcement as civilian volunteers by contributing their time, vehicles and off-road skills. Jeeps can help cover terrain that would be inaccessible to most patrol vehicles. Interested club members- please email Laura at email@example.com
Great turnout! Thanks everyone for all the donations
